The Long Lake Parks, Recreation & Tourism Department announces the opening of a skate park at the Geiger Arena. The new skateboard park is located inside the skating area at the Mt. Sabattis Recreation Area. The new ramps and rails are manufactured by Freshpark and are designed for use by any non-motorized piece of equipment, including: skateboards, roller blades, scooters, and bikes.  The new skate park will be open from dawn until 10:30pm and free to use. 

 

Equipment included in the set up are 4 quarter pipes, safety rails, launch ramps, fun box and a grind kit. 

The rules are posted at the rink as the area is not monitored by staff. 

Anyone using the park should be wearing protective gear, including helmets, wrist and knee protectors.  

Park is open from sunrise until 10:30pm.  

No motorized equipment. 

Users must wear safety gear, anyone nine or under must be supervised by an adult, alcohol and smoking is prohibited. Users are asked to report any broken equipment or safety issues by calling Parks and Recreation at 518-624-3077 x113

The Town would like to thank Trisha Hosley for spearheading this idea and providing the research on the best options to get this park installation underway.  Special thanks to Town Supervisor Clay Arsenault and the Long Lake Town Board for approving this project which enhances outdoor recreation opportunities for all ages.
